Standard spec but good quality low loader
Budget approx £7-10k

Preferences:
Sprung drawbar
Sprung ramps (or hyd!)
Hardwood floor
Better tyres than twin lorry wheels
Commercial axles with LS brakes?

Yes I know I'm being rather optimistic...!

You had a windfall thought on your other thread that was too much?

No windfall. Looked at a single axle for £3k, but decided it wasn't stable.

Looked at @AgriLinc mini for £5850 and that's near capacity as they say, as well as only being steel floor, no sprung drawbar etc. Their 13t version with sprung drawbar works out at £7600, so on that basis I might as well look a little wider afield as well.

Trying to keep the cost down as much as possible, but safety comes into it a bit. I'd rather buy something decent now than regret it later.

An ex-demo or ex-stock with a wodge of discount would be ideal really. :rolleyes::whistle:

Definitely plus if its overspecced (weight and size) it's future proof.

Thanks. I've priced a 13t version up on their website similar to above at £7600.

Herbst seem very competitive, but wondering whether to go better quality. Some on here don't seem to rate them.
our has been no trouble apart from 3 sets brakes ,new lights,new floor ,new mudguards and a respray to be fair it is 14 years old done a hell of a lot of work and would recommend them ,the floor boards are crap though
